    Do you mean 2004 was downloaded automatically? I use Home 1903, and 1909 has never been downloaded.
    ...I have never used the "Pause updates" option.

    The symptom being reported by some (but not all, I can't make it happen) is that if you do pause updates, 2004 will start to download without asking permission as soon as you resume updates.

    Is there any way to turn updates back on and keep the Feature Update from installing?

    I believe metered connection can still stop feature updates.

    Yes, that's what it does...

    Prior to having the update paused, WU just downloaded the 2004 feature update and asked when to restart and install the update. That's when I've started delaying the install. If the delay removed, it starts to get ready the system for update, by downloading it...

    Neither had I, until WU wanted to install 2004 feature updates...

    It remains to be seen whether WU can compromise my PC.

    Mathew: v.1909 was forced onto my system twice by WU when 1909 became available. It failed both times and I rolled back to 1903 via a system image. I now have WU paused until Oct. 18, 2020.

    See the advertisement in my post #12 above. It works on my Windows 10 Home.

    Negative. I've got metered connection and don't download on a metered connection set.
    It started downloading anyway.

    I'll look into that script. Thanks

    Just don't pause updates once you get the "Feature Update is ready for you" message!

    Have you set connections as metered via a Registry hack as shown below?

    Do you mean the message shown in the screenshot in my post #10?

    Hi, have you considered using 'defer' - either in Settings or the group policy editor, as you have Pro?

    Or is it the case that the Pause/Resume bug overrides that?
